Instant Parking Karma

A big thanks to the stranger who helped me out this morning. The parking lot at my train station uses smart cards to pay the $1.75 meter. This morning, my card had only $1.50 on it. I figured I could deplete the card and put a quarter in the meter. No such luck. It would not split the payment method. I did not have enough in change to pay the full amount.

The guy parking next to me saw me walk away unpaid. I was going to the station to re-load the card. I would, however, have missed the approaching train. Without hesitating, the guy stuck his card in my meter. I offered to pay him in cash. His response was, "take care of someone else later."

Nice guy.

Thanks.
